  1. 1966, FFA corn plot, my cohorts would show up with new 3020s and 4020s. Heck, one of the families even had 2 4020s, and all the farms milked less cows than we did. I brought our big tractor, a Farmall 300 and 311 plow. Asked Dad why, he said we don't have the hills they do. Anyway, in 1967, he bought an estate 806 that had had only 1 year use, 1968, a new 656 HiClear that I still use, 1971, new 826 hydro, 1978 traded hydro on a new 1086. Next door neighbor would trade tractors every 2 years, new Allis one year, new JD the opposite year. We must have been in a more prosperous area. Darrows was 1 1/2 hour north of us. They had a nice array of late model mostly Farmalls, as did Twin W Dairy which was closer to me.
  2. I found the second set. Let me know if they are something you need.
  3. I have one set (both halves) in my hand and think there is another set here someplace that is hiding.
  4. My vote also would be the coil (more likely) or condensor (less likely). I have a Case D that would run long enough to get me to the far end of the cow barn and quit. Let it sit half an hour, it would start right back up, and run long enough to get back to the machine shed by the near end of the barn. New coil helped immensely.
  5. about 40 years ago, I was at a farm auction where the old guy had a 6 row JD cultivator on the front of a JD 530. he allowed as to how you wanted to keep the front tires aired up pretty good.
  6. at least from mounting them in the past, I knew about where to put the chain so they would balance. Got it right first time for both sides.
  7. that is what I did a few days ago. Patch of quackgrass showed up in some late sweet corn. At least I made the quack feel bad.
  8. Got them switched with some help from Mr Winch. I think it will make an OK tractor to take to the Corn Festival, along with my old hand corn sheller.
  9. That will be in the future, maybe for the other H. The 1940 gets used for plow day every year. Plan B involves these cultivators, but not Old Rusty 200. Cults are a bit too much for me to move by myself. They must have gotten heavier in the last 10 years, think I put them on by myself back then... I spent a couple hours in the shade today, getting the Touch Control working correctly on the Super C in the background. That is where the cults are getting moved to when I get some help. I actually used these this year on some sweet corn that had spray escape.
  10. after watching some of this I'm thinking that will be me, less the young man to help. Maybe I will reconsider the H idea. 😬
  11. Great video, thanks. I have a right and left assembly like this. Also have the 2 hydraulic cylinders from a different source, but no mounting bases. And no rear gang. Local corn festival coming up at the end of the month. Looking for something different to take.
  12. Anybody have pictures of cultivators mounted on a Farmall H? Thinking of putting some I rescued from the junkman on my 1940 H, but don't think I have all the lift parts and linkages.
  13. I'm going tomorrow.
  14. Surprised that no one has mentioned safety yet. I know several farmers just in our valley that have been attacked by their herd bull. No deaths, but they were stove up pretty good for a while.
  15. mostly by default/ use over 42 years farming. I have three NH 455 skid steers(2 usable), had 2 325 skidsteers before the 455s, a NH 900 chopper still in use, a 707 3 pt chopper usable, wore out about 4 892s and a 782, a 718 chopper still in skid row, good 311 baler and one for parts, 270 baler that burned up in the barn fire, a Super 77 antique baler, 848 and 650 round balers in use, 2 258, 256, 56, and Super 55 rakes, 1431 POS discbine, 114 swing mower, past was 469, 479, 488 and 489 haybines and 2 411 discbines, a 166 inverter, wore out 2 #6 and one #8 unloading wagons, a 354 grinder mixer, past 2 352 mixers, have 2 model 120 sicklebars with the double dolly wheels in back, only one NH spreader, a 329 that was here when we came. Even have a NH unloading jack for the silage wagons with false endgates. I would like to find a NH model 90 3-wheel PTO side rake like the one I used with my 460 high utility when I was about 11 years old.
  16. does this one count? holds maybe 75 bushels?
  17. try Fry's in Muncy, Pa. 570-546-3968. I read that they don't ship any more, but they did 2 years ago when I needed some parts.
  18. to coin a phrase, "nice headlights!" followed by a slap. Oh wait. The copper tubing looks like it was grafted into the system. Actually, I doubt that very many Tel a Depth are still working. The one on my 560 gas worked so annoyingly that I disconnected it and run the drawbar off a remote. Personally, I wouldn't call it much of a loss if it got destroyed. Those lights would sure look good on my 460HU.

    Im Back

    welcome back, Robby.
  20. BTDT twice. Sold the milking herd in Jan 2015, kept the heifers and started milking again in Sept 2015. Wasn't ready to quit then. Sold almost as many milkers as I sold in 2015, in March 2018, kept youngstock until they were ready to calve, out of Holstein business in Dec 2020. I was ready that time. Cows take all your time and ask for more. Good luck with the sale, and future endeavors. I know you'll stay busy.
  21. yes, rain gauge is marked off in tenths, with darker numbers for .5 and full inches.
  22. fine tractor, and beautiful job on the plow. Shiny on the front of the moldboards can be a nice look, too.
  23. happy birthday, iowaboy.
